I'm also terrified of the dentist, so I feel your pain. I'm also terrified of cockroaches. Last time I went to the dentist, my friend told me to imagine something happy and drew me a picture of a butterfly. I went and my brain turned my dentist into a giant cockroach. I am now switching dentists. (There were other issues with his office as well, but that doesn't make quite as good of a story, does it?)

I had five teeth out as a kid (as a result of too many growing, not one too many sherbet dib-dabs), and I can't even stand the smell in one anymore. Reminds me too much of the smell of the gas they used on me.

Aw, I'm so sorry! I've never been scared of the dentist, though i'm sure it helps that I never had braces or cavities.

I have had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled and gum surgery (soft tissue graft), but for those I was on nitrice...can't spell, but it's awesome.

I also had a nightguard molded so I don't grind away my teeth.

I don't know your fear, but I still feel for ya! Hang in there!

I'm really scared of the dentist as well. I would say it's a phobia but there's nothing unreasoning about being afraid of someone who can hurt you! Close your eyes and do lots of deep breathing.

You have my thoughts. And have a big virtual hug.

Yeh! Well done. First for managing to sit in the chair! LOL! I have to take someone in with me.

And yeah, a nice understanding dentist makes all the difference.

At least it's over with!

Oh I had to take my O/H with me :) But it's done and I can relax now!

I'm terrified of spiders.

Don't feel bad I have to go soon to get a metal rod taken out of my jaw.

I get scared of my dentist. I go in and they don't talk to me, they just pull out a needle. I'm like, "Whoa, no! Tell me what we're doing first!" I never know if they want to fill something or screw around with the tooth I broke.

I like going to the dentist. Thankfully, I have nice teeth and have very few problems.

Sounds like your trip to the dentist went well. Good for you for facing your fear! I hope any return trips get easier for you.

Dentists don't scare me as much as the dental hygienist. I swear I've had some who scrape at my teeth and gums with such force that days later I'm still hurting. I'm relieved when the dentist comes in the room and I know that the torture is over.

Glad you're okay now, Charlee :)
